Duppy Share Spiced Rum: A Treasured Drop of the Caribbean in Every Sip

The Duppy Share Spiced Rum, a multi-award-winning spirit, graces shelves with its promise of a tropical escape. But beyond the alluring bottle lies a rum boasting a symphony of flavours, perfect for savouring neat, in cocktails, or as a base for delightful mixed drinks.

This detailed tasting note explores the depths of Duppy Share Spiced Rum, guiding you through its aromatic profile, taste sensations, and ideal serving suggestions.

A Toast to Tradition: Heritage in Every Bottle

Duppy Share takes inspiration from a rich Caribbean tradition. In folklore, "duppies" are mischievous spirits said to take a sip from every rum barrel. This spiced rum embodies that spirit of sharing, offering a taste of the Caribbean's warmth and vibrancy.

Blended with aged rums from Jamaica and Barbados, Duppy Share spends two years maturing in casks. This ageing process imbues the rum with a smooth, golden character, forming the perfect canvas for the infusion of exotic spices.

Unveiling the Sensory Experience: A Journey for Your Palate

On the Eye: The rum boasts a beautiful amber hue, reminiscent of sun-drenched Caribbean beaches. As you tilt the glass, the liquid reveals a pleasing viscosity, hinting at the richness to come.

On the Nose: The first breath entices with a burst of tropical aromas. Juicy pineapple takes centre stage, intertwined with the warm, nutty character of kola nut. Hints of vanilla, ginger, and citrus zest peek through, creating a beautifully inviting bouquet.

On the Palate: The initial sip delivers a smooth and rounded mouthfeel, thanks to the aged rum base. The flavour profile explodes with a vibrant medley of sweet and spicy notes. The sweetness of pineapple and vanilla dances on the tongue, balanced perfectly by the warmth of ginger and a touch of peppery spice from clove and nutmeg. Underlying citrus notes add a touch of freshness, ensuring the rum remains lively and inviting.

The finish is long and satisfying, leaving a lingering warmth of ginger and a subtle hint of cocoa. The various flavours seamlessly integrate, creating a complex yet surprisingly harmonious experience.

The Art of Serving: Unlocking Duppy Share's Potential

Duppy Share Spiced Rum's versatility shines through its ability to be enjoyed in a multitude of ways.

Neat or on the Rocks: To appreciate the rum's full complexity, savour it neat. Allow the spirit to warm slightly in the glass, releasing the full range of aromas. For a touch of refreshment, serve it on the rocks – the chilled temperature accentuates the citrus notes and adds a subtle dilution, making it even smoother on the palate.

Classic Cocktails with a Twist:  Duppy Share elevates classic cocktails. In a Dark and Stormy, it replaces the traditional dark rum with its spiced character, adding an extra layer of complexity.  For a refreshing summer cooler, use Duppy Share in a Mojito – the rum's pineapple and vanilla notes complement the mint and lime beautifully.

Crafting Unique Mixed Drinks:  Duppy Share's adaptability makes it perfect for creating bespoke cocktails. Here are some inspirational ideas:

  • The Spicy Escape: Combine 2 oz Duppy Share Spiced Rum, ½ oz fresh lime juice, ¼ oz ginger syrup, and a dash of Angostura bitters. Shake well with ice and strain into a chilled coupe glass. Garnish with a lime wedge and a sprinkle of grated nutmeg.
  • The Tropical Paradise: Muddle a few fresh pineapple chunks with mint leaves in a shaker. Add 2 oz Duppy Share Spiced Rum, 1 oz pineapple juice, and ½ oz lime juice. Shake well with ice and strain into a tall glass filled with crushed ice. Top with soda water and garnish with a mint sprig and a pineapple wedge.

Food Pairings: Duppy Share Spiced Rum complements a variety of dishes. Enjoy it alongside spicy jerk chicken, tangy barbecue ribs, or creamy goat cheese. The rum's sweetness also pairs well with tropical fruits and decadent desserts.
